I’m not a goals person. I don’t really like setting them because then I psych myself out and sabotage everything and end up elbow deep in a jar of Nutella as I listen to sad music and cry and reflect on my poor life choices. Not good for my cool girl image, you know?
Usually, my goals look something like:
“Don’t sneeze on anybody this week” (<< P.S. I’m sick again)
“Don’t fall on your face while walking on flat ground” (<< This happened a couple of weeks ago)
“Try to make that huge ass bag of frozen mango chunks last more than a day, dammit” (<< Sorry, not happening)
No matter how minuscule the goals, I still manage to fail at them. Oops.
But you guys! Wait! I’m about to contradict everything I just said about hating goals by setting some goals for April (and the rest of the quarter… And the rest of forever, maybe).
Three goals. Just three. I can do three. It’s like a menage a trois of goals. Sexy, right? So sexy.
What were we talking about?
1. Play more.
Translation: Do more fun shit. Go out on school nights. Like, out out. As in, out on the town, not just out to Chipotle. Say “yes” to invitations. Make plans with people so I don’t spend half of Saturday watching Giada at Home reruns in bed.
2. Sleep more.
A lot more. Last quarter, I was averaging about 5-6 hours per night and I spent about a month of the quarter sick. Coooool. I’m feeling another cold coming on, so I’m making sleep my friend. I’m aiming for at least 7-8 hours per night, which I think should be pretty doable… Maybe.
3. Move more.
This is my last quarter of having access to free group fitness classes at the university gym, so I’m going to take advantage of them! I’ll be teaching Pump ‘n’ Sculpt (weightlifting) and Cardio Chisel (bootcamp) this quarter, and my goal is to throw in some Zumba, U-Jam, and cycling classes as well.
I’ll let y’all know how this whole goal-setting thing works out.
IN THE COMMENTS:
Do you like goals? Do they motivate you or freak you out?
What are your goals for April, if you have any?
